About Us...

Historic Argyle is a non-profit organization created to preserve, protect and promote the cultural heritage and architectural history of the people and places of the Argyle, Wisconsin area.

Historic Argyle was incorporated in 2000, for the primary purpose of acquiring and restoring Argyle's "Saxton House", the boyhood home of Robert M. La Follette from 1862-1870.

Historic Saxton House, boyhood home of Robert LaFollette

Since then we have acquired and moved Saxton House and refurbished the exterior, roof and windows. We have also acquired the "Red Front" building and moved it to the same site, to serve as an entrance point to the site and to provide public facilities. Ultimately, the Saxton House will serve as a local museum to provide a truly unique public attraction and display space for local items of historic interest, with emphasis on the life of famed politician, "Fighting Bob" La Follette.
